“Perfect”
Reviewed July 24, 2008

St Thomas B&B was perfect. Janet was able to meet us at the airport, took us back the following day to pick up our hire car and collected us from the airport when we returned the car. We stayed 2 separate nights a week apart and it couldn't have been more convenient.
The pool is wonderful and the rooms very comfortable and well equipped. The breakfast was great and the taverna/restaurant next door provides great meals. Janet and her family made us feel really welcome and at home.
I would, without hesitation, recommend this B&B to anyone arriving and departing through Athens airport or, indeed, anyone visiting Athens.

We stayed at St Thomas B & B for two nights before flying to Kos.
St Thomas B & B is a wonderful relaxing oasis, the garden is very pretty and the pool very welcome after a long journey.
We stayed in the downstairs rooms, (My grandson had his own room adjoining ours.) the rooms and the bathroom were a good size and were very well equipped.
Tea and coffee with fresh milk and water in the fridge,board games, pool towels, shower gel etc in the bathroom, so we didn't have to unpack our whole case before traveling on.
Janet and her family are very good hosts and made us feel at home, the breakfasts were fantastic and served on the terrace. Cereals, yogurt, fruit, bread, jam and honey, eggs, plenty to eat for a days sight seeing.
Athens is very accessible from the B & B, Janet gave us a lift to the nearest metro station ( which was very easy to use) and picked us up when we came back.
The Taverna a few yards away was really good, my grandson was off running around with the local kids by the end of the evening.
We plan to stay at St Thomas again, but for longer next time,
( and no grandchildren) it's a wonderful base for exploring Athens, and peaceful to return to after the noisy city, also I checked out the double room before I left and it looked gorgeous !

We were arriving to Athens on a late night flight, and then departing again the next morning, so we were looking for a nice place to sleep that wasnt terribly expensive. The St. Thomas was perfect for that! Its in a neighborhood near the airport, and is a very nice property. The beds were comfortable, and the shower, while not large was one of the better ones we had in Greece. Janet's son picked us up from the airport (and we had a really late flight too!) they had a little car trouble, but were very nice about it. We stayed here again on the way out and had a good experience again.

I would highyly reccomend it over any of the other airport options as you get personal service for a lot less money!

  • Liked — Janet was helpful and friendly and the location near the airport is great
  • Disliked — We had a little trouble finding it on the way back, its a little off the main path

I stayed at St. Thomas B&B twice -- the day I arrived in Athens and again the day before I flew home. It was a really good experience --the Owner, Janet, is warm and welcoming, the rooms were very comfortable and attractive (both with bathrooms), and I immediately felt at home.
There is a lovely garden with a swimming pool (still too cold when I was there), and a good taverna a short walk down the road.
I was particularly impressed (and grateful) that Janet will meet you at the airport, and take you back again when it's time to leave. She was very helpful in checking to make sure the flight was on time, etc.
I would recommend St. Thomas wholeheartedly to friends, family, and really anyone who is looking for a "soft landing" on arrival in Athens.

My wife and I spent one night with Janet and her family en route home. True to her word, she picked us up on time and delivered us to the airport at our convenience. We were in frequent contact to insure there were no miscommunications and Janet always replied promptly. It was a treat to stay at her home, which is located about 15 minutes form the airport in a rural area overlooking heavily cultivated hills. The home itself has a lovely, commodious garden. Her glass-paneled ktichen, where one has breakfast, overlooks the garden and swimming pool. We stayed in the room on the upper floor, which has a small balcony and sitting area ,and overlooks the garden and hills. We were pleased that our mattress was frim, but soft , unlike the hard and uncomfortable mattresses one usually finds in Greece.. Janet provides a copious breakfast, with freshly squeezed orange juice, eggs, cheese, various cereals and breads, yogurt, fresh fruit and cookies. She allows her guests to use her computer to send internet msgs. Although a little isolated, there is a taverna a few houses away, which provides good food at reasonable prices. Janet will also drive her guests to a small community where there are a variety of restaurants and will also provide transportation to and from a metro station for those who want to venture into Athens proper. If you want to be near the airport for whatever reason, we highly recommend you stay at Janet's home. Her husband and grown children - when they ae at home - welcome you and make you feel like a house guest rather than a client. We would be happy to answer any questions about our stay.

Janet Wilkinson, the proprietor, provides excellent transporation service between the airport and her comfortable B&B (a 15 minute ride included in the price of the room). Our room was nicely furnished, the twin beds were comfortable, and all of our needs were met. The breakfast was great (the best we had in a two-week visit to Greece) and Janet is gracious, knowledgeable and helpful. I recommend the B&B without reservation (well, the bathroom was a bit small) and believe it to be perfect for someone who desires to stay near the airport.

My two teenagers and I just came back from a lovely vacation in Greece. We chose to stay by the airport the first night as we had a flight the next day to Santorini. Janet was so kind as she picked us up at the Athens airport to take us to her B&B, and then the next day drove us back to the airport for our flight to Santorini! This relieved us from obtaining taxi services!

St. Thomas is the only place to stay if a traveler needs to stay by the Athens airport! It is a nice place and I can't say enough about Janet the owner! She is a very kind and helpful person! She made our stay very enjoyable! We stayed in two rooms in the downstairs portion and had our own bathroom which was nice!

The breakfast was fantastic as she had cereal, eggs, homemade jam, fantastic Greek yogurt with honey, freshly made breads, coffee, tea, etc! It was a delight!

We also chose to stay at St. Thomas at the end of our trip since we had a very early flight back to the U.S.

Our thanks goes to Janet for all her kindness, and we loved our stay at her very nice establishment! Upon our departure, we felt that she was a good friend of ours and look forward to staying at St. Thomas again!
